Today, the world has entered an era of global geopolitical transformations associated with both challenges and new opportunities, the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev said at the international conference “Central and South Asia: Regional Connectivity. Challenges and Opportunities”.
According to Mirziyoyev, the revival of mutual ties between Central and South Asia, where about two billion people live today, is becoming a demanded and objective process.
“I think that the time has come, based on the huge historical, scientific, spiritual and cultural heritage of our peoples, the complementarity of economies, the availability of intellectual potential, to consolidate our joint efforts, which will undoubtedly give a powerful synergy effect,” the President said.
He stressed that connectivity, cooperation, dialogue and, most importantly, trust are “a driving force for ensuring stability and sustainable development, improving the standard of living and well-being of the peoples of our regions.”
“All this creates the necessary prerequisites for the formation, on the one hand, of a space for interregional cooperation and partnership, free from conflict and socio-economic shocks and, on the other hand, a vast market for goods and services,
investments and innovations,” Mirziyoyev said.
